Frequently Asked Questions about Brain Injuries in Philadelphia

What is the statute of limitations on brain injury claims in Philadelphia?

Under Pennsylvania law, you typically have two years from the date of an accident that caused your brain injury to file a lawsuit against the party or parties responsible for causing the accident. In limited circumstances, you may have a longer time to file suit. This makes it important to talk to a traumatic brain injury attorney in Philadelphia, PA as soon as you can to know how long you have before you may need to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your brain injury.

Do I have a claim if I was partly at fault for the accident that caused my brain injury?

Possibly yes. Pennsylvania law states that an injured victim may still pursue a claim for compensation so long as they are equally or less at fault for the accident that resulted in their injuries than the party or parties they are pursuing compensation from. However, any compensation you would be entitled to in a settlement or a trial verdict can be reduced in proportion to your share of fault to reflect your liability for your injury. For example, if you incurred $100,000 in losses for a brain injury that you were 25 percent at fault for, you could recover $75,000 in a claim, with you being responsible for the remaining $25,000.
